your last post had nothing to contribute to the issue.
it is irrelevant if you use a different methodology,
or if you think that I think in modern Hebrew, or
if you know very little about modern Hebrew.
please demonstrate that your statements about
*natsal and hatsil
are internally consistent and produce readings
that fit the whole biblical text.
Show how they produce reasonable,
good readings in the various contexts.
I found your statements inconsistent, and your definition
of *natsal inappropriate as a base for hatsil,
it would create an EXTRA layer of causation
"to cause someone/someting to take away . . ."
As I said:
"If and when you want to pick it up,
please do not rehearse personal backgrounds but --
simply give a definition that explains how *natsal means
approximately "to take away [for safety]"
and hitsil is a causative built on that.
Until then, it should just be dropped."
Your last message did nothing about the hatsil issue.
